Winemaker Notes

Dark with purple undertones. The noes presents intense notes of violet, black fruit and spices, black pepper and licorice. On the palate this wine is round, full-bodied, has huge finesse with elegant tannins, very fresh.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A blend of equal parts Syrah and Grenache that’s a serious value, the 2012 Famille Perrin Vinsobres Les Cornuds is a Northern Rhone look-alike with its violet, raspberry, underbrush and crushed flower styled aromatic profile. Coming from the northern most part of the Southern Rhone, this medium-bodied, elegant 2012 builds nicely on the palate, with fine tannin and fresh acidity lending focus and length on the finish. It will have upward of a decade of longevity.
Range: 89-92
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Focused, with a fleshy edge to the core of plum and currant compote flavors. Violet, anise and incense notes fill in on the finish. Just a touch tight, but this should fill out with brief cellaring.

One of the more established villages promotoed to its own Côtes du Rhône Villages appellation, Vinsobres produces uniquely styled Rhône blends based on Grenache and Syrah in its relatively cool and elevated vineyards.

Rhône Blends

View all wine

With bold fruit flavors and accents of spice, Rhône red blends originated in France’s Southern Rhône valley and have become popular in Priorat, Washington, South Australia, and California’s Central Coast. In the Rhône itself, 19 grape varieties are permitted for use, but many of these blends, are based on Grenache and supported by Syrah and Mourvèdre, earning the nickname “GSM blends.” Côtes du Rhône and Châteauneuf-du-Pape are perhaps the best-known outposts for these wines. Other varieties that may be found in Rhône blends include Carignan, Cinsault, and Counoise.

In the Glass

The taste profile of a Rhône blend will vary according to its individual components, as each variety brings something different to the glass. Grenache, which often forms the base of these blends, is the lightest in color but contributes plenty of ripe red fruit, a plush texture, and often high levels of alcohol. Syrah supplies darker fruit flavors, along with savory, spicy, and meaty notes. Mourvèdre is responsible for a floral perfume as well as body, tannin, and a healthy dose of color. New World examples will lie further along the fruit-forward end of the spectrum, while those from the Old World taste and smell much earthier, often with a “barnyard” character that is attractive to many fans of these wines.

Perfect Pairings

Rhône red blends typically make for very food-friendly wines. Depending on the weight and alcohol level, these can work with a wide variety of meat-based dishes—they play equally well with beef, pork, duck, lamb, or game. With their high acidity, these wines are best-matched with salty or fatty foods, and can handle the acidity of tomato sauce in pizza or pasta. Braised beef cheeks, grilled lamb sausages, or roasted squab are all fine pairings.

Sommelier Secret

Some regions like to put their own local spin on the Rhône red blend—for example, in Australia’s Barossa Valley, Shiraz is commonly blended with Cabernet Sauvignon to add structure, tannin, and a long finish. Grenache-based blends from Priorat often include Carignan (known locally as Cariñena) and Syrah, but also international varieties like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, anything goes, and it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or even Tempranillo make an appearance.
